Re: LEGACY 2.5 AUTO GEARBOX REPLACEMENT
Hi there, needs to be the same number. computers need to match. tourque converters are different from 2.0/2.2 to the 2.5 engines. also shift points are different between models so needs to talk to the dash perfectly. hope this helps.

The first thing you need to check is for water contamination in the gearbox oil, if none try filling it with the correct procedure and reset adaptations, if there is water in the gearbox do not bother repairing it at a huge cost, they seldom get it right. Rather look for a good secondhand box that is the same make, the most common is the ZF6HP19
Hi sad to say this gearbox requires valve body repairs ,replacement of dextron 3 ATF fluid and filter.clutches and friction plates should be checked replaced if worn.Torque converter should be checked out.If gearbox has electronic functions a diagnostic report should be done before stripping.A conventional auto gearbox pre 2000 model could be fitted with a external modulator switch causing present fault ,over powering the above mentioned faults.
Always check it with the engine running, and put the gearbox into Park. and the handbrake ON, Make sure that the gearbox is warmed up to normal operating temperature first. A drive of a couple of kilometres ( or about a mile and a half, depending where you live) should do it.
It will be either a problem at the window regulator (the mechanism to which the glass attaches and raises/lowers it) or the gearbox attached to the motor.
This vintage had an issue with destroying three little nylon balls inside the motor gearbox that work against cam lugs. (Working from memory here & going back several years). I used to replace these by making my own pin-type rollers. I cut short pieces out of bolts, carefully measured to length, filed the edges and inserted in place of the nylon pieces along with a small amount of grease to provide lube. By doing this I was able to repair instead of replace the window motor. I THINK (but can't remember for certain) that I've seen these replacement rollers on the "Help" center misc. blister-pack section in almost all auto parts stores. Not sure if I have available an illustrated graphic of this gearbox or not. I can look if necessary. If you're not comfortable with or properly equipped for making your own parts for repair - then you'll likely have to replace the window motor.
could be a bent parking pawl from engaging park while the vehicle is still moving. The park setting on an auto pushes a steel rod into a hole in the gearbox mainshaft so if you engage park when you are still moving it will eventually bend the pin and it will stick. You may be able to use force via a bar, at the gearbox end where the shift cable connects, while an assistant rocks the car back and forth. If you get it free, do not use park any more, instead use neutral and the handbrake.
Well in a auto gear box you have in the pan on g/box a filter and a forward oil pump and a reverse pump also a set of bands forward and a reverse plus a valve body assy which has a load of small pistons and springs and oil ways ,but by the sound of your problem is that the forward pump isent going through the body valve for some reason so its taking a short cut and bypassing 1,2,3, and trying to to top first.
So sorry to tell you that the answer to your problem is you have to go to a Auto Matic gearbox shop and they will have to fix it ORget a second hand box and fit it yourself.
Let me know how you go. are you on Skype Ron
you should have no trouble swapping the automatic transmission from one car to another just be sure that the part number on the transmission reads 4EAT the gearing has not changed much only the filtering setup the newer version is better too
